    We looked at These Foolish Things in Mar 2014 and at I'll Remember April in Apr 2014 and again in Jun 2016, so ...

    Our standard for May 2018 will be Cole Porter's Love for Sale (1930).

    Oh, just seen this. I'd forgotten it was today. Goody. I'm aware of the song, of course, but never really looked at it musically before.

    goes off to research new tune, never played it before, very exciting


    Right, nice. I'm going to like this one. I hear extensions, which means we might be able to use some of the triad stuff on it. And blues, naturally.

    (edit #2)

    God, it's HUGE!

    I wouldn't let it inspire you too much, it's a little OTT :-)

    But thank you

    Curious which chart you are using - my Real Book doesn't have it (V6). I found what looks to be an earlier chart (#222).

    Early... you must be going on your holidays... :-)

    Very good as usual, M-ster. You're one of the unsung heroes of this place and it should be recognised. No bull, no excuses, no messing, no overposting like me, just straight in and do it really well every time. And you're not a pro (as far as I know).

    Well done, Sir! When's the album coming out?

    I don't really like the song either, tough to get motivated...

    What Bill Evans and Miles did in playing the tune and also Miles solo is incredible. How he modifies the tune melody slightly (not embellishments) is unbelievable, staying on Bb in second and third 'A' how can one figure this out... Also the mood is so in harmony, I mean Bill Evans and Miles.
